Something for Everything? Say it with a card!

Have you ever had a moment when you didn’t know what to say? Say it with a card! This month’s Something for Everything Paper Pumpkin kit includes a super-versatile stamp set complete with (a whopping!) 13 sentiments (not bad, but good luck!!) that can be used for occasions ranging from wedding, to get well, birthdays, and more! Here’s just a few of them:

    • hey friend…you’re the best
    • happy birthday…it’s your day…let’s celebrate
    • Congratulations

Plus, the kit’s three full-sized card designs (4 of each) are gorgeous but completely versatile, giving you the flexibility to use them for any occasion. Start the new year right with cute, fun, and easy cards from Paper Pumpkin for 2020. Be sure to purchase yours by December 10  here.


And when you’re adding your Paper Pumpkin subscript for December’s kit, think about expanding your “say it with a card” options by adding the Here’s a Card Stamp Set. It can help you in many events where you don’t know what to say, just give them a card! I’m positive the lucky recipient of your card will love it.

The samples above show how a casual or avid crafter could coordinate with products from both the annual catalog and the holiday catalog to get cards perfect for any occasion. The Congratulations card is combined with the Leaf Punch and the Stitched Nested Dies from the annual catalog with the Feels Like Frost designer series paper from the holiday catalog. The Happy Birthday card features the Balloon Bouquet Punch from the annual catalog and the Brightly Gleaming designer series paper from the holiday catalog. The Hello There card was made with the Stitched Shapes Dies and the Cup of Christmas Stamp Set.

There are so many ways to show someone how much they mean to you when you use December’s Paper Pumpkin kit and the Here’s a Card stamp set. Let me know if I can help you with any of these projects.

Peaceful boughs to ring in the holiday season

What could say winter, and the holiday season better than decking your projects with pretty pine cones and beautiful boughs? (Except maybe Santa, or Snowmen?) The images in the Peaceful Boughs Stamp Set are so realistic you can almost smell the fresh pine in the air!  It includes the Peaceful Boughs cling stamp set and the matching Beautiful Boughs dies.

Isn’t this card gorgeous with all it pine branches and pine cones? It reminds me of growing up in Nebraska with snow on the trees for Christmas.

This showcases our elegant gold and silver foil papers to create an elegant Peaceful Boughs card. Gives me a feeling of frost and chill in the air, especially here in southern Texas where we seldom see snow and not very cold temperatures.

And the best part? You can use this bundle all year! The below holiday card on the left uses the Peaceful Boughs Bundle paired with Night Before Christmas memories and more cards and envelopes. While the card on the left uses the Bird Ballad Designer Series Paper to prove that you can use this wonderful stamp set no matter the time of year! And don’t forget the Perfect Parcel dies in the 2019–2020 annual catalog to tie it all together, just as we did in the Season’s Greetings sample. You’ll love how versatile it is, not to mention how handy it will be in the coming months (*cough cough* Christmas).

But no matter how you use this Peaceful Boughs bundle to create cards, boxes, tags and projects to give to people, I hope it instills a feeling of peace and beauty to all who receive it.

Here’s a list of the various products used in the samples above:

Thanks for stopping by today, keep on stamping those Christmas and holiday cards and projects!
